I like to read his books and his story telling is superb. I just didn't like all the little short stories as much as his other books.Published 3 months ago by Robert Blank
Great stories but the writing style is not so great. Better runner than writer, that's for sure. Still, it's an easy read and motivates to go do your runs!Published 3 months ago by futureglue
